and political figures. the plane was on its way to a ceremony in russia to mark the 70th anniversary of the soviet killing thousands of polish prisoners of war. when it crashed in thick fog with 96 people on board, there were all sorts of conspiracy theories swirling around. it has emerged that there were some serious mistakes made in the way the russians identified the bodies. forensic tests have shown that several people were buried in the long rates, and now more bodies are being exhumed to check their identities. >> the college president was killed with 95 others in a plane crash in russia in 2010, but in a macabre scandal, poland is still burying the dead after authorities say six bodies were misidentified and buried in the wrong graves. the first hint something was amiss was the discovery of irregularities in forensic documents sent from russia. poland's military prosecutors said they had reason to believe that the body of the country's last president in exile was not the one buried in the temple of divine providence in warsaw. he served his time while the country was still rul

russia, natural gas will be there right beside us. we found 200 years of natural gas is up price already. if natural gas is up price increase we can go back to drilling natural gas. we did analysis. if we export 6 billion cubic feet natural gas a day that will only impact the price ofenry hub natural gas by 20 cents per million cubic foot. a very small increase. hey, if you export it will double in price. that is not true. melissa: one of the problems as you're drilling down on the details here it is a gas. you have to turn it into a liquid in order to be able to load it on a ship. >> yes. melissa: and export it to another country. you need a terminal there where you can receive it, turn it back into gas. >> yeah. melissa: that adds a lot of money to the price. it still realistic under those metrics? it works because america has cheap natural gas right now and if you look atthe numbers, the $5 number it adds on top of the natural gas commodity price in america going to asia and 4.50 going to the europe, the difference is the panama canal toll way, about 50 cents there. at $3.60 this morn
